The 111 or 1111 sequence can be an incredibly meaningful sign of alignment in the process of manifestation. You might also see 222, 333 or perhaps even 555. Whatever the numerical sequence, these ‘Angel’ numbers are such a strong and powerful form of communication to let you know that things are all aligning very nicely.
It’s a beautiful sign of alignment and message to let you in on a little secret: You’re in the flow.
You may see the clock at 11:11 or see license plates with a 111 sequence in it. You might be receipt number 111 or have your groceries total $111.00 – whatever it is, just say ‘thank you’ in your heart as you acknowledge the deep connection you have with creating your reality.
But why do I see the number 111 all the time?

This is a question I get asked so much, especially from my manifesting students around the world. For me the number 111 is extremely special. I’ve been seeing this number as a form of guidance for as long as I can remember. My birthday is on the 1st of November (1/11) or (11/1) for my US friends.
I frequently look at the clock at 1:11pm, see license plates with 111, phone numbers, word counts when I’m writing and the list goes on and on.
Remember, there are 24 timezones in the world and so 11:11 on your phone that you screenshot is not a sign that your desires are manifesting. It’s a reminder to stay present with your manifesting. Do you see the difference?
The sign you attach to has the danger to become a band-aid solution where your brain is ultimately setting you up for disappointment when you ask for it and then don’t see it. Alternatively, you start to see it too much because it’s been activated in something called your Reticular Activating System within your brain and therefore it bears no real significance.
The real magic resides in the present moment.
For me, it’s a message from the Universe that everything is in alignment as it is meant to unfold.
I’ve heard so many other people see 111 or 1111 (and other repetitive number patterns) that they now carry meaning but are unsure how to read the signs. I’ve also heard various explanations – ranging from it being a sign of alignment to a sacred message from your spirit guides or angels or perhaps even a warning from your higher self to pay attention to the present moment.
The truth is that it could mean absolutely nothing. We could live in this chaotic Universe with random acts that hook themselves into our awareness that mean diddly squat. However, I have experienced way too many signs of alignment to do with the number 111 that it’s a little bit too orchestrated for me to ignore.
For example, the number 111 seems to circle around in my conscious awareness when specific life events are unfolding. When I first met my husband (we met on Twitter and he flew from America for 11 days) we became acutely aware of the importance of 111 as a sign of alignment.
I was on the promo tour for my book (The Power of Influence) and my publishing company (Wiley) offered to pay for our accommodation in the honeymoon suite of The Windsor Hotel in Melbourne. The address? 111 Spring Street Melbourne.
Sean and I were at the conference venue after my speaking gigs and waiting for a taxi (in virtually the middle of nowhere). It was an hour back to the hotel. Sure enough, out of all the taxis in Melbourne number 111 rolls up to the valet area to pick us up. Needless to say we were blown away.
These are all beautiful signs of alignment.
There are, however, a few caveats to how you interact with your connection to signs. For instance, it’s best to stay present with them and don’t read into things too deeply. Also be open to the possibility that coincidence can cleverly hide herself as syncronicity sometimes. The key is to pay attention to how you feel. Make it a fun game with the Universe where you feel fully immersed in gratitude for the gentle reminder that all is well, you are on the right path and it’s time to be present.
This is where the heavy-handed line between superstition and Divine guidance is deeply drawn in the sand.
Superstition is fear-based, whereas synchronicity and signs of alignment are powered by superconsciousness.
